Best luggage for a 7 week trip

Jump to last reply

I'm travelling for 7 weeks, Africa and then Europe. I bought a Zuca, which is just a little too small, especially if I want to do any shopping along the way.

I'm a woman so I know how to pack badly and schlepp way too much stuff - I'm using this trip as a real learning experience for packing small and being efficient with space.

I will definitely use a rolly (bag on wheels) and packing cells, because that's a must for keeping organised. I expect to carry enough for 2 weeks and will lauder as I go.

I got the pacsafe slingsafe backpack and bag for my personal stuff (laptop, iPad, camera, passport etc) excellent quality with RFID anti theft and ant slash straps (I know but it is small, light, functional and very cool). Now I just need a suitcase that measures up. I love my Zuca but it's just too small for this trip.

Thoughts? suggestions? ideas? thanks :-)
